A Letter To My Son

My Precious Son,
How long we have waited for you! You are already loved beyond measure and you are filled with the gift of hope, love, life and His Spirit. You have such a place in this family and in this world and we are each one praying for you and for your safe arrival each and every day. You are already blessed and highly favored -even from the womb and we are anxiously awaiting the moment that we can hold you in our arms. You are blessed with a family who already loves you so. We are awaiting your arrival with prayers and thanksgiving and preparing your place here in your new home with great joy and anticipation. I am on my knees son, praying for you- that you would arrive healthy and whole. Seeking Him- that I would raise you up in the admonition of the Lord. Asking Him- for wisdom, guidance and supernatural grace that I would train you up in the way that you should go.  Trusting Him- that He will be there with me as you are born and in the years to come. Believing Him- that you, my sweet son, my fifth gift are a blessing to this world, a world changer, a counselor, a warrior, a servant, a treasure within an earthen vessel. 
I am on my knees with gratitude to be called your Mother....
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.- 1 Corinthians 2:9

I just had to say yet again how wonderful it is that each of your children have such a weight and special place in your family. I have seen children in large families get lost in the crowd, but I think your children will be immensely blessed by the unique place you give each and every one of them in your family. Please post when the baby is here!! Have y'all decided on a name for him?

That is beautiful. I hope you can preserve it to give to your son when he is older.
